. on their face i don't expect the senate to reject mr. brennan for cia chief, and despite mr. hagel's troubles in the confirmation hearing, i don't expect he will be blocked as a matter of substance or his performance in the hearings. but it is true that if a couple of senators decide to hold things up because they want more answers, it gives the administration a choice. it can either go to bat against the republicans and say they're being unreasonable, they're being political, they need to back down, or they could make a decision we just want to get this thing through, let's try to give them enough information to satisfy them and get it over with. jon: a mouthpiece for the administration in this situation said these are critical national security positions, and individual members -- meaning senators -- shouldn't play politics with their nominations. but isn't that what happens at every nomination, the senators trot out their list of wants, you know, information wise from the administration and use some leverage? >> yes, i mean -- well, jon, that's what advise and consent ultimately means. it

, the republicans used the hagel nomination as leverage and they basically said we're going to hold this up until we get this information. the white house did not want to release it, they had refused to release it, they said that these emails within the administration were part of the deliberative process, but they knew that the hagel nomination might not get through without it and so they are going to release the information to try to satisfy the senators. now of course the interesting question is what is in the emails, why is it that this was from early on in the week after 9/11 when it was seen first as a terror attack and then suddenly it wasn't a terror attack and al-qaida was part of it, then suddenly al-qaida was not part of it, by the time susan rice came on "fox news sunday" that sunday, five days later, it was a spontaneous demonstration in reaction to the ante islam video that spun out of control. and the question is how do we get from this pint to that point? martha: that is really back to the seed of whatever wants a good grip on here. petraeus as head of the cia at the time said they k
